Peaches, blueberries, oatmeal, almond milk, and yogurt in a smoothie. So simple. So damn delicious.
Oats are my new favorite addition to smoothies. They add a nutty flavor that blends perfectly with succulent peaches and blueberries.
HOW TO ADD THE MOST FLAVOR WITH FRUIT
When blueberries and peaches are not in season, they will be bland and not naturally sweet, making your smoothie bland and lifeless.
This might seem obvious, but use RIPE fruit for smoothies so you don’t have to add any extra sugar.
Unless it’s summertime, I always buy frozen blueberries and peaches. When fruit is frozen, it’s preserved at its peak.
Peaches can sometimes still taste bland when frozen, so you may need to add some honey to taste to sweeten this smoothie up.
HOW TO CONTROL THE SUGAR CONTENT IN A SMOOTHIE
To keep the sugar content as low as possible, use ripe fruit because it’s naturally sweeter.
Also, use unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice) and plain yogurt.
Once you blend the smoothie, add honey to taste if it needs a little more sweetness.
